"Smooth body, and decent semi-sweet cream and earthy hop flavor. Aroma is hard to get out - you have to work for it. Nothing to complex or interesting in this one."

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A little citrus-y and very malty on the nose, with a substantial bread, toast, oatmeal contribution from lots of malt. Still, the beer is in balance, and there is a unique astringency from the hops that would leave one to believe there is more alcohol to this beer than there really is. Generous palate.

16oz can. Golden yellow color with a small white head. Raw dough and grassy aroma. Clean malty flavor with a hint of wheat and a creamy oat finish. Creamy texture with average carbonation. Nothing special, but nothing bad about it either. Smooth, well balanced and enjoyable.

UPDATED: NOV 5, 2014 On tap at Gen Con beer garden. Pours a clear yellow with a thin head that laces. Aroma is smooth. Grain, and traditional hops. Taste is balanced. Slightly creamy with grain, a touch of caramel. Medium body and carbonation. Creamy mouth feel. Easy drinking. Overall an easy drinking cream ale.

Not much on the nose maybe some bread or light grains. Tastes nearly the same with some more grainy flavors. Maybe a tad of vanilla? Either way nothing special here.

16oz can courtesy of Trent!
It pours a straw yellow with a 2 finger head of foam.
I get floral hops and some caramel malt in the smell.
The malt in the taste is more of a grainy variety with the hops giving me a lemony kind of bitterness, not tartness, mind you. A bit of corn is noticeable but not a huge detraction.
Fairly light bodied, it does have a weak kind of watery finish.
Cream Ales are not a style that will turn heads but...this is a very good example of the style and it is certainly an easy drinking brew. I like.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured out of a 16oz can. This ale has very clear crisp golden color basically like a cider. The white head quickly dissipates, and the aroma is pretty faint with malty creaminess coming through. The taste is very refreshing, creamy and malty with a hint of hops at the end. This is a pretty refreshing brew that seems just a little light in my opinion. Overall not bad though.

16 oz. can. Pours a straw yellow color with a medium white head. Aroma is slightly sweet with some golden malt and and gentle straw notes. Flavor is mildly sweet with cream, bread, and grain notes. Slightly lower carbonation than I was expecting. Medium bodied. Crisp, clean finish. This is a pretty good summer beer.
